Blizzard Conditions

Monday February 2, 2009

Headed out to the shops yesterday afternoon to get in some supplies for the week.  Put on many layers of clothes, gloves, hat and scarf.

As I left, with all my lights flashing on the Dahon, the snow was really coming down hard and the wind was blowing directly into my face.  Tough ride to the shops, about 1.5 miles, but got there in the end.  Locked the bike up and did my shopping.  The ride back was much better.

One of the things which helped was a Hedy.  I bought two years ago during an earlier biking phase and it’s a good bit of kit.  You can use it as a hat, face mask, neck warmer etc.  It’s basically a tubular piece of material but it is very useful.

I thought they’d stopped making them as their website has closed down but Halfords still sells them.  I’ve also noticed that you can get the same thing from Buff.  Check out their videos to see how many ways you can wear one – first video shows all.  Head over to Buff as they have lots of colours and options – including some reflective ones.  I’ll be buying more as my old Hedy ones are looking a bit rough.
